Clay Lamberton Elementary School identifies three expectations for students and staff, known as the Cougar Way: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. All students are taught what these expectations look like in all school settings including classrooms, cafeteria, playground etc... For a complete listing of our school-wide expectations, please see our attached matrix. Additionally, each teacher has their own matrix that reflects these expectations in their classroom. We are committed to acknowledging students for following the expectations and recognizing them with Cougar Paws for following the Cougar Way.
Throughout the year, Clay Lamberton holds assemblies for booster activities and celebrations focused on the Cougar Way expectations. The Expect Respect Group is an integral part of these assemblies providing instructive skits and encouragement to the entire student body.
When problem behaviors do occur, the school communicates with parents and when appropriate provide additional support for students who need further reteaching and behavioral supports for change. Clay Lamberton administrators, teachers and staff use proactive and restorative approaches to help students correct and learn from their problem behavior.
